The present invention relates generally to a pneumatic tool, and more particularly to its hook with a limit structure.
In response to users' demand, the current pneumatic tool (such as pneumatic handle, pneumatic gun) is added with hook in convenience of hanging the pneumatic tool. However, under some circumstances, the hook is not needed, therefore, there are many hooks for pneumatic tools are designed with assembled or disassembled options.
The structure that present invention desires to improve is the limit structure of the hook mentioned above. The conventional design puts a stepped cylinder at the area that is prepared for the hook of the pneumatic tool, so that a loop cover of the hook may be placed pivotally over the cylinder. A screw clamping ring is made to be screwed onto the end of the cylinder of the pneumatic tool, and by blocking one side of the loop cover to achieve the purpose of limiting the hook. Except, this conventional structure still has the following issues in practical application.
1. From a manufacturing point of view, because the screw clamping ring and the cylinder part of the pneumatic tool has the spiral part that can be time consuming during the manufacturing process, which creates the disadvantages, such as higher cost of manufacturing, and it does not meet the preferred industrial practicality.
2. From an assembling point of view, the assembling of the screw clamping ring must be screwed on to achieve the desired position; therefore, the process is slower and less effective.
Thus, to overcome the aforementioned problems of the prior art, it would be an advancement if the art to provide an improved structure that can significantly improve the efficacy.
To this end, the inventor has provided the present invention of practicability after deliberate design and evaluation based on years of experience in the production, development and design of related products.
1. The main objective of the limit structure of the hook of the pneumatic tool disclosed in the present invention is to achieve the pinned position by the unique design of pinning the through fixers to the ring groove and radial through hole that is placed correspondingly to the loop cover and hook assembly part of the pneumatic tool. And by this design, the purpose can be achieved by the simple structure of hole, pin and ring groove, and the manufacturing process is simpler and faster, which meets the preferred industrial practicability of simplifying the production and reducing the cost.
2. Another objective of the present invention is to improve the disadvantage of the screwing method by the new design of pinning method of the through fixer, which greatly improves the efficacy of the assembly.
3. Another objective of the present invention is to make the second end of the through fixer ring groove like for an elastic ring cover to connect to, so that the through fixer has the advantage of fast disassembly in convenience of disassembling the hook in the future.
Although the invention has been explained in relation to its preferred embodiment, it is to be understood that many other possible modifications and variations can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed.
The features and the advantages of the present invention will be more readily understood upon a thoughtful deliberation of the following detailed description of a preferred embodiment of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings.
As shown in
The invention includes a pneumatic tool body 10, which can be any hand tool that is pneumatic, such as pneumatic handle, pneumatic gun.
A hook assembly part 11 is the cylinder shaped area that is preset on the pneumatic tool body 10.
A ring groove 12 is located on the circumferential area of the hook assembly part 11.
A hook 20 includes a hanger 21 and a loop cover 22; among them, the center of the loop cover 22 has a slip hole 23 that can be pinned from outside the hook assembly part 11.
Two radial through-holes 24 are located at two radial spaced locations on the loop cover 22 of the hook 20, and the center line of these two radial through holes 24 go through the two corresponding sides of the ring groove 12 mentioned above.
Two stick-like through fixers 30 have an expanded end 31 on its first end, and its second end has a limit assembly part 32 for limit part, and this second end pins through the radial through-holes 24 mentioned above and its corresponding ring groove 12. By locking the middle of these two through fixers 30 at the two relative sides of the ring groove 12 separately, the hook 20 reaches the combination of limit state that is rotatable.
Two limit parts 40 are assembled to the limit assembly parts 32 for limit parts mentioned above, and by pinning the through fixers 30 to achieve the positioning, and to prevent them from getting loose.
After the hook of the pneumatic tool disclosed in the present invention is positioned by the through fixers 30 mentioned above, the hook 20 will then be in a 360° rotating condition, and is able to be adjusted to the desired angle according to the user's need.
Among them, the limit assembly parts 32 for limit part on the second end of the through fixers 30 mentioned above are better shaped like a ring groove, so that the limit part 40 mentioned above, which is made of elastic ring cover (can be rubber material), can be positioned by tightly binding the limit assembly part 32 for limit part to the slip hole 41 of the limit part 40. On the other hand, when the user desires to disassemble the through fixer 30, it can be achieved by taking apart the limit part 40 forcefully to disassemble the through fixers 30, which is an advantage of speed disassembly.

As shown in
Among these, the space between the loop cover 22 of the hook 20 and the hook assembly part 11 of the pneumatic tool body 10 can be structured with positioning components, and to make the hook turn to achieved the positioning effect; please see
Several fixing edges 51 are located on the edge of the hook assembly part 11.
A containment hole 52 is located radially on one side of the loop cover 22 of the hook 22.
A fixing axle 53 can be inserted into the inner end of the containment hole 52, and by so doing, the fixing edge 51 mentioned above is locked.
A spring 54 is to support the fixing axle 53.
A limit bolt 55 is to be screwed onto the outer end of the containment hole 52 to position the fixing axle 53 and spring 54.
